Keltule Meeks, a Chicago rapper, former TV host, and grandfather, was shot and killed while trying to defend his wife in an attempted armed robbery Tuesday morning.

CHICAGO – A family on Chicago’s West Side is mourning the loss of a beloved father and husband who was killed in an armed robbery while protecting his wife.

CBS 2’s Andrew Ramos learned the killers in the case may be linked to another homicide.

Many along Lawndale Avenue were still rattled over the events that took place there Tuesday morning when a man and woman walking to their car were ambushed by two men demanding money. The getaway car used in the murder was involved in another homicide the day before, CBS 2 has confirmed.

It was around 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday when police said a 48-year-old man and a 50-year-old woman were walking along North Lawndale Avenue.

Surveillance footage obtained by CBS 2 shows a white Kia Forte pulled up into an alley, two people jumped out and approached the couple.

CBS 2 chose not to show what happened next as one of the men opened fire, shooting the male victim in the head.
